This is a really bad made caliper! – Digital 150mm Caliper Reviews

posted by Jan09 on 09/08/2013

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It is half the price of buying one locally. Looks good on the outside. It is quite accurate.
Cons:
The important sliding surfaces are the only ones that are not smooth and nice. It takes a lot of force to move the slider, so small adjustments are impossible.
Other:
I disassembled it and tried to get it working. I found rough edges inside the sliding surfaces. Then I tried lubricating it but this only resulted in setting free all the grinding dust inside of it.
Bottomline:
The caliper looks fine but is totally worthless. The sliding surfaces are way to roughly cut to be functional.
